"Heroes" Recap: Episode 22, "Landslide"

"Heroes" Recap: Episode 22, "Landslide"

On this week's episode of "Heroes" (the second-to-last one of the season!), all the heroes' stories start to merge together in an extremely satisfying way. This show never fails to surprise me, yet it also gives me pretty much everything I want to see.

Mr. Bennet and Parkman go to retrieve "The Walker Tracking System," while DL and Jessica/Niki seek out Micah via Linderman. Nathan Petrelli is poised to win the election — with Micah's help. Meanwhile, Claire, Peter and Ted make an escape plan which goes awry thanks to — who else? — Sylar. Those are the least spoilery details, so if you haven't seen the episode do not read on. Otherwise,

  • One of my favorite parts: When Ted mocks Peter for basing his knowledge of the future on a painting and Peter retorts, "Yeah! That and a dream."
  • I love me some Micah. I am such a sucker for his little raised eyebrows and adultish manner of speaking. I couldn't believe it when mean old Linderman promised Micah's family enough money to live "happily ever after" if Micah messed with the polls. Evil! That Malcolm McDowell will do well in the next Halloween movie.
  • How awesome is George Takei/Hiro's dad?! I love that he's one of the "good guys" leftover from the alliance that included Linderman and Grandma Petrelli.
  • The look of absolute glee on Hiro's face when his dad swings the sword up near his neck is absolutely priceless. I love that guy.
  • I wonder what Candace's real shape is? I'm guessing from the dialogue that she's obese, like Jabba the Hut obese. Poor Micah has to deal with a shapeshifter. Then again, I guess he must be fairly used to it living with a half-violent dual personality mom.
  • Speaking of Jessica/Niki, why didn't she just kill Linderman when she had the chance? I can't understand that. Another favorite moment in the episode, though: When seeing Parkman again, Jessica says, "Did I throw you out a window?"
  • Oh, Ando, Ando, Ando.
  • Well, if Linderman's going to die somehow, a fist to the brain is a fine way to do it.
  • Hiro's dad, regarding Hiro's mad sword skills: "You've come far in a short time." Yeah, short like 20 minutes.
  • How badass is Mr. Bennet?
    Thompson: "What am I thinking now, Parkman?"
    Mr. Bennet: "Your last thought." Bang!
  • I hope they explain exactly what happened to Nathan and Peter's dad next week. I don't believe for a moment that he killed himself. I felt a surge of affection for Nathan when he growled, "My father was my hero."
  • Nice little bit of comedic relief: Mr. Bennet, DL, Jessica and Parkman riding the elevator with muzak playing dinkily. Cheesy elevator music stops for no heroes!

  • Didn't Peter absorb Nathan's flying power? Why can't he and Claire zoom away to Nebraska together? If they left at night from a rooftop nobody would notice.
  • Man, I love Mohinder-and-Molly. It just melts my heart. Two lonesome souls fighting evil together. I hope Mohinder adopts her.

Next week, Claire insists "the future is not set in stone!" We'll see about that, Claire Bear. What did you think of this week's episode of "Heroes"?

now now... I want to talk about heroes, because I am happy now... I do feel something for Sylar, he looks kinda hot. Nevertheless he's bad and he had to die... and die painfully. And Nathan... who he thinks he is to make Hiro cry? that b~#$tard. So, we think that hiro's dad is the legendary Japanese hero that they talk about? does he can manipulate time like Hiro?

Molly's cute but by the end of the show I was thinking dude she's gotta die...nobody's safe as long as she's alive. Oober mean I know.

I think the reason that Peter doesn't fly Clair to wherever is because; yes he has flying powers but he doesn't have super strength! What is she going to sit on his back the whole way? Geebus! :D I loved this episode, Molly is kinda cute but she reminds me too much of the girl who play Cindy Lou Who. *shrugs* CAN'T WAIT FOR NEXT WEEK!

Yesterdays episode was amazing. God I hate Sylar. He doesn't stop. I love the relationship between Molly and Mohinder. Adorable. I am curious if Candace is really different then what she looks like. I hope the season finale will not disappoint me.

I still have a crush on Sylar. I still feel guilty about it.

Oh and I'm so sorry about your dog NadiaPotter. I hope you find her.

I can't believe the seasons almost over. I LOVE this show. I think Mr. Bennett's cool. The Hiro part with his dad was great! I think Mr. Linderman will heal. Nathan's a sleaze! I liked the joke poor Ted made about wearing a cape

IT WAS GREAT EPISODE but... right now I can only think that my dog is missing and Nothing, even Heroes, can cheer me up, she went missing yesterday, and my friends were like "did you see heroes?" because they know that I am a fan, but all I can say was "I lost my Daisy" and sent them pictures of her, I am so sad...

I kept wondering why Ted didn't just heat up a little bit to get out of his handcuffs. Wouldn't they have melted? Also, he should have been like Eden and blown himself up when he knew that Sylar was going to kill him. But otherwise, great ep!

Great recap! Such a good episode! I cannot wait until next week! Did we ever find out G-Ma Petrelli's power?? And, I was very happy to see Nathan's wife able to walk again! At least Linderman did one nice thing. :) I will admit Mr. Bennett was pretty bad-ass, I still do not like him.

I love me some Hiro...hopefully he is able to save Ando! I can't wait for the finale next week, better be good.

Another thought - does anyone else think that Peter may be able to fly Sylar above the city and explode him to stop him??
controlledspin controlledspin 10 years
I loved it. Although, I was so sad when Sylar killed Ted :( I was like "Ohhhh, poor Ted." He was so trapped. I love the Jessica/Niki character. She is badass. I was loving Mr. Bennett's badass-ness too, Buzz :)

Ha ha... katiejam, my boyfriend said the same thing about Linderman healing himself, but this occurred to me: When Peter was telling Claire to shoot him if he started to explode, he told her to aim for the back of the head, like where DL punched Linderman in the brain. Thus, I think that's the way to defeat a "hero."

i loved it when hiro yells you're a villain, a villain to nathan! excellent!

Good episode...I'm just hoping the finale doesn't disapoint. They better change the future, in comic books you want the heros to win. If Peter still explodes and no one stops it - I'll be sad. My husband thinks Linderman will heal himself from the injury DL gave him. Since he was able to heal Nathan's wife. AND - I thought the EXACT same thing... why didn't Clair and Peter just fly to Nebraska... not in a plane but in Peter's arms.
